  • LCD Soundsystem, This is Happening! (Hit and miss–“Dance Yrself Clean” is a good metaphor for the album. Your first listen is like, “What the hell is going on here, Mr. Murphy?” Then you hit the halfway mark and you’re like, “Oh, I see what you did there. I love all of this now.” Plus, “All I Want” sounds like Bowie’s “Heroes,” so that’s always good.)

Songs of the Week:

These are songs that I would actually stop listening to other music for. I’d be, say, three songs deep in Method Man’s Tical and think, “Nope, not feeling it. Time to dance myself clean again.”

  • Animal Collective, “My Girls
  • LCD Soundsystem, “Dance Yrself Clean”
  • Julian Casablancas, “11th Dimension
